I found DRAWING AND PAINTING INSECTS a very professional approach to a broad exciting venture of visual awareness, natural structure, and beautiful documentations of insects. There is a spirit and heart that spills across the pages. The text and illustrations make for intriguing content combined with a great flow of information and images. The "why" is as important as the "how." The use of the aesthetic treatment of subject matter and the quality of real images is really high especially when linked with the progression of image development. This is a great book for anyone interested in insects and how to document them in a variety of media and image states. As an artist educator I find Andrew Tyzack a great resource for structural investigation, visual accuracy, natural description with the added bonus of the artist's eye.
